The Middle Tour Final, for the prize of Kwiaty Polskie and under the patronage of Baborówko Equestrian Association, saw 50 riders on the startlist. The first course, at the height of 140 cm, included 12 fences, and proved to be demanding also because of the precise time allowed. Ultimately 12 pairs went on to the jump-off. Poland’s 19-year-old Aleksandra Kierznowska was unbeatable aboard the chestnut Corleano. It was the rider’s 60th international win.
„The strategy was to go fast and clear. I saw the previous riders and I feared that the turns that I planned may be too hard for Corleano, since he is not as experienced. But we managed to do it and I’m very proud.” – said the winner.
Second place went to Marek Lewicki with 8-year-old Come, and third to Kamil Grzelczyk riding Cassidero. Young polish athletes Lena Maruszak and Lena Oleszkiewicz also showed they are in great shape, scoring double clears and placing 4th and 5th respectively.
